WARNING: SatSquatch will use large amounts of data, especially when animating loops. WiFi or unlimited data plan is recommended for heavy use.

SatSquatch is a tool designed for weather professionals and enthusiasts looking to display imagery from the GOES weather satellites (GOES-16 & GOES-17) in a user-friendly and responsive interface.

The base version of SatSquatch allows access to all available base satellite layers (full list below) as well as custom derived products such as true color or visible/infrared composite layers. The application also allows users to loop through up to 50 images and toggle overlays for their location, state borders, country borders, major highways, SPC outlook, etc.

Upgrade to SatSquatch Pro (4.99/mo, 7-day free trial) to overlay vital meteorological information such as METARs, temperature contours, or derived quantities such as convective available potential energy (CAPE) from our custom mesoanalysis. Our mesoanalysis updates at a high frequency (every 15 minutes) and at a fine resolution (grid spacing of ~3km).

Minor issues

This app is fantastic. I’ve only had 2 minor issues that have been constant. First is if I’ve had the app already open and it resets in the background and I go back to it, it will give me a data error when trying to choose anything. Closing the app completely and reopening solves this. Also I’m still not able to have my pro subscription crossover to another device (both iOS.) aside from those 2 small things this so far is amazing.

Great App and Suggestion to make Better

This app is great. It is so nice to have a satellite dedicated app. Been using Weather.cod in Safari for GOES and must say SatSquatch is much more mobile friendly. I’d really love to see a 500mb height & wind layer added to Mesoanalysis. Also would like to see GOES GLM added in the future.

Belongs in every chasers/wx enthusiasts toolkit!

Ever since the update some months back, this all has worked flawlessly for me. Can't beat it for a mobile GOES/mesoanalysis experience!
